Failure and ignorance: 2 neglected keys to college success
from Psychology Today
Students with a fixed mindset do not respond well to failure. They believe that people have a fixed level of intelligence, and that there's nothing to be done after failing a test. "As a result, they avoid a challenge and they were not resilient in the face of failure," according to Carol Dweck, author of Mindset: The New Psychology of Success. Students with a growth mindset believe that by expending effort people can improve their intelligence and skills. Thus, they know that "failure was part of growth."
